The Dismantling Racism Committee engages our congregation in anti-racist education, advocacy, and formation. The committee forms partnerships with other faith communities, nonprofit organizations, and local groups.
Mission Statement: As concerned people of faith centered in the Catonsville community, we see the impact racism has on societal systems and how it erects barriers that divide our communities and marginalize our neighbors. We listen to and accept the truth of racism’s long-standing, systemic impact and boldly speak that truth to the world. We educate ourselves and others by highlighting the explicit and implicit biases that keep us from seeing and acting on the racism in ourselves and society. Therefore, we seek to promote equity, respect, and justice in our communities and respect everyone’s basic right to exist and thrive.
